Seriously, don't even try Skitch 2.x. Download and use Skitch 1.x instead. This is a perfect example of how a big company takes over a small developer with a great app and destroys everything. I think that the Evernote people don't even have an idea what Skitch 1.x was about. And after all this time they have taken over Skitch an got negative Feedback about their new Skitch 2.x, they changed exactly nothing. I am an Evernote premium user and I like it. But with Skitch 2.x they made every imaginable mistake one could think of.

This was a magnificent app... right up until Evernote acquired it. Crazy as it sounds, it turned into pure, useless garbage within a month. Nothing has changed since then—it's still buggy and limited by Evernote, who hasn't done anything to improve the app, or even update the UI to look like a modern app, since the day they got their hands on it. Like many others, I switched to Monosnap, which doesn't require an account (unless you want to use the "library/manager" feature, and allows you to upload to your own server if you choose.

Sure its simple but its great for doing hat it is designed to do. I'm happily running version 2.8 on macOS 10.13.3 beta 2 with no problems. Most of all its FREE. It does lack some sophistication but if one just wants an app to make a ring round an item in a photo and point an arrow at it and write a short text then its 100% good to go in my opinion. If the author updates, he should charge a fee or at least ask for a donation.

After a long and hopeful wait, I have finally given up on Skitch. Monosnap has filled the void and has very nearly combined the best of Skitch 1 and Skitch 2. The last thing for them to add is a handy library a la Skitch 1, but otherwise it's gone the mile and they seem to listen to feedback which is far more than what we've gotten from the new Skitch owners.

I tried Monosnap. It required an account on their servers to use it. It went straight into the trash. I'm sticking with V1 of Skitch. V2 is useless.

It's not necessary to create a Monosnap account to use the app.

practical app, but the GUI would benefit from an overhaul. Starts to look a bit outdated.

Super bad news folks, most recent build of 10.11 will not allow Skitch 1.x to run any longer. Please submit bug reports to Apple in order to fix this issue as it is a problem simply URL handling (com.apple.NSURLConnectionLoader specifically) it appears.

tried the latest version again hoping the main issues would been fixed however back to old skitch after 3 days here is why: 1. No history if you don't use Evernote (I actually do use evernote but don't want all my screenshots on there. 2. No way to easy change image name before drag and drop 3. Upload to FTP now takes 2 steps click, scroll to bottom release pity how this perfect software has been butchered

Still happy with 1.x. Sadly the devs don't listen to us on the lists of features that we miss from 1.x. Stay far way from this until they get their UX heads out of their proverbial butts. Devs, go back through our emails and the compilations here for all the help you need to make this app useful and desired again.

When I upgraded my MacBook Pro from OS X 10.8.5 to 10.10, I decided to give the latest release of Skitch 2 another try. It took me only a couple of screen snaps to see Evernote is persisting with the mess they made of Skitch. Fortunately, Skitch 1.0.12 is still working well on 10.10. The only shortcoming is having to click "Always Allow" on startup when "Skitch wants to use your confidential information stored in 'skitch' in your keychain." If I could eliminate that minor annoyance, Skitch 1.0.12 would be perfect.
